iolaus: (iolaus herc conversation)
[personal profile] iolaus

"Whoa, wait a minute!" Iolaus skidded to a stop. Hercules was already half a mile ahead. "Hey, Herc!"

The son of Zeus turned to look over his shoulder and finally realized Iolaus wasn't beside him. "What's wrong?"

"Wrong?! Wrong, he asks me!" Iolaus raised his eyes with a frustrated plea to the heavens. Not that he expected the gods to give a damn but it made for great dramatic effect. "Why don't you tell me these things sooner?"

"Why? Would it have made a difference?"

"No, but—"

"You'd have come along in any case, wouldn't you?"

"Of course I would! You know that. You know me."

"Exactly. So what's the problem?"

"It'd be kind of nice if you kept in the loop every now and then."

"What loop? If you needed to pick up some rope—"

"You know what I mean!" cried the smaller man in frustration. "Information! The full story!"

"Full story. I see." Hercules shook his head, mildly bemused. "I thought we went over that."

"Apparently not completely. I don't remember you saying anything about the end of the world as we know it!"

"Hmmm. No, I'm pretty sure I mentioned it."

"No, you didn’t," insisted Iolaus. "All you said was something about an army on it's way to Corinth. We've fought armies before, and a lot worse besides. How's that going to be the end of the world? Just sounds like another day on the job to me."

"An army of mercenaries, minotaurs, giants, and a few hydra. Led by a Titan."

"See?!" Iolaus threw up both hands. "That's exactly my point!" he cried. "You didn't say a thing about the Titan."

"Are you sure?"

"Positive." Iolaus folded his arms across his muscular chest. "Anything else you forgot to tell me?"

"Well, there might be one more thing," admitted Hercules.

"Yeah? And what's that?"

"You make a lousy actor."

Iolaus suddenly grinned, instantly replacing his righteous indignation with a sunny smile. "Yeah, but I had you going there for a bit there, didn't I?"

"Not even for a second," replied Hercules with an answering grin. "Got your breath back?"

"Yup. What're you waiting for? We've got a world to save."
